San Francisco Sunday September 2

Phil and I went to the store and bought supplies for a huge breakfast.  We had eggs to order, sausage, bacon, hash browns, melon, tomato, avocado, coffee, toast and juice.
The guys went back to the store for supplies for the Labor Day cookout.

It was incredibly foggy with the fog horns softly sounding in the background. We decided to head for the sunshine and the Marin coast at Point Reyes.  The Golden Gate Bridge was completely shrouded in fog.  We felt bad for all the tourists walking in the cold, wet across the bridge.

As we hit the end of the bridge, the fog lifted and it was a glorious day. We stopped for coffee and a geocache which we found next to a very dead deer! I love the changes from dry oak sprinkled hillsides to dark redwood forests.  We drove through the quaint town of Pt. Reyes Station and stopped at the really informative Bear Valley National Seashore Information station.  The ranger gave us maps and told us that the lighthouse would be in fog.  We decided to take the Limantour Spit Trail.  The 20 minute drive down to the beach was spectacular and the beach was fantastic.  We did take the trail along the estuary. Lots of birds and blue sky.

The trip back to SF was really pretty (until the fog and traffic at the Golden Gate Bridge.  Phil and I went to Fresh and Easy for supper stuff.  We watched Bernie II and enjoyed our meal.

See all pics from the long weekend.
